If you are a current CRTC Member in good standing and you are not participating in one or more CRTC Groups – you are missing the boat on key membership value.
CRTC Meeting Groups provide top-level relationship development throughout the CRTC network. Group engagement challenges you to lend your experience and expertise to the mix and nurture valuable relationships to grow your business in the process.
CRTC Groups include Committees, Interest-Based Forums, Online Region Groups and NetEx. Group engagement is FREE for current CRTC Members. For the purpose of this post we’ll focus on two types of CRTC Groups: Forums and Regions. All CRTC Groups can be found under the "Connect” Menu item in the upper navigation. To join any of the CRTC Groups simply login to chesapeaketech.org, click through to the Group page and look for the "Join this Group” icon under the green ribbon. If you ever want to leave the group you click on "Leave this Group” under the "Options” icon. Grow your knowledge, showcase your thought-leadership and build powerful relationships with CRTC Forum Groups
CRTC Forum Groups are member-driven interest groups focused on a specific topic. Current Forum Groups include B2G, Commercial Cyber, Emerging Tech, Public Policy, Social Media Marketing, Women in Tech
and Workforce Development
. Some Forum Groups meet on a regular monthly schedule and some meet periodically. Forum Group In-Person Benefits
include access to top level thought leaders in various topic areas, the opportunity to showcase your knowledge and leadership in a particular area and focused, high quality, peer-to-peer relationship development. Forum Group Online Benefits
include access to presentation files and other shared documents, helpful links, online discussion forums, Blog re-posting and group directory member-member access. We hope you will find value in attending upcoming Forum Group meetings, but when you can’t get there, the online resources provide a full
array of added value from your desktop. Sponsorship opportunities are currently available for all CRTC Forum Groups. Click here for more details. Drive regional connections and opportunities with CRTC Region Groups
The CRTC serves growing tech companies throughout the Annapolis-Washington-Baltimore tech triangle so CRTC Region Groups provide micro-networks for Members based on their regional location featuring information, organizations and resources serving a specific part of the CRTC "tech-triangle.”

Join several Region Groups to access special events and offers from our Regional Partners. Involved in other organizations serving parts of the CRTC triangle? Send us the info and we’ll promote your opportunities to the appropriate Region Group. All CRTC Groups can be found under the "Connect” Menu item in the
upper navigation. To join any of the CRTC Groups simply login to chesapeaketech.org,
click through to the Group page and look for the "Join this Group” icon
under the green ribbon. If you ever want to leave the group you click
on "Leave this Group” under the "Options” icon.
